Does the County help with Cremation services?

The County through the Sheriff’s Office has negotiated a low-cost arrangement with local mortuaries for cremation expenses. If the applicant qualifies as low income through the process described below, then the price for the cremation should not exceed $500 and should be paid to the mortuary directly. However, the local mortuary that provides this service changes by quarter, so please call 530-265-1471 so we can help guide you to the appropriate funeral home.
